This simple, yet effective kit demonstrates how solar panels can convert the sun's energy into electricity, how it can be stored and how that energy can be released and used when required.

In sunny conditions, the Poly-Silicon solar cell converts the sun's radiant energy into 1.8V of electricity which charges the Nickel Hydride rechargeable battery. As the sun's light reduces, so does the output of the solar panel. When the solar panel's output falls below approximately 0.7V, the circuit stops charging the battery and the captured energy remains in the battery. In darkness, the solar cell's output drops to zero which triggers the circuit to switch on the 2 LEDS to provide illumination.

The module is supplied as a kit of parts that can be assembled by students as part of a Design and Technology project.

22 November 2018 Question by: Rapid Customer | Product code: 55-0006
Q. Hi, what size in the Poly-Silicon Solar cell, as the battery looks AA size I'm guessing it is about 80mm by 120mm, which would be ideal for my purpose. Please could you confirm.
A. Hi Mike, thank you for your question. The solar cell is approximately 136 x 80mm.
